Sådan vil Zuckerberg få os til at shoppe på Facebook og Instagram

Recode:
“The big new feature for online merchants is called Facebook Shops. These customizable online storefronts, which live on a Facebook page or Instagram profile, allow people to browse and purchase items without leaving the apps. Zuckerberg also said that in the coming months Instagram would be adding a dedicated shopping tab to the app’s main navigation bar, which would make it more obvious to Instagram users that they can do more than swipe and “Like” on the app.”

Sådan bruger Facebook AI til at gøre Messenger sikrere for børn

VentureBeat:
“We designed this safety feature to work with full encryption […] People should be able to communicate securely and privately with friends and loved ones without anyone listening to or monitoring their conversations. As Messenger becomes end-to-end encrypted by default, we will continue to build innovative features that deliver on safety while leading on privacy. These safety notices will help people avoid potentially harmful interactions and possible scams while empowering them with the information and controls needed to keep their chats private, safe, and secure.”

Derfor købte Facebook GIPHY

Casey Newton / The Interface (The Verge):
“The stated reason for acquiring Giphy, as expressed in this blog post from Instagram’s head of product announcing the deal, is twofold. One, Facebook can now build tighter integrations between the products to enhance stickers, stories, and other products. And two, it can make further investments in Giphy’s technology and content library to benefit all the companies that rely on Giphy for GIF supply. “

Protocol:
“Facebook promised not to shut down Giphy’s third-party integrations. Obviously. But how Giphy’s many partners react to the product’s new corporate parent will speak volumes about how the rest of the tech world views Facebook right now.”

The company will begin today by making most of its US job openings eligible for remote hires and begin taking applications for permanent remote work among its workforce later this year.”

Radio Loud drukner i falske følgere på Instagram

Medietrends:
“De mange tavse, falske følgere liker og deler ingenting, og samtidig når Radio Louds opslag ud til færre af de rigtige følgere. Så samlet set falder interaktionerne.

At købe falske følgere til Radio Loud er altså rendyrket sabotage og næppe venlig ment.”

Twitter kritiserer studier af Twitter-bots

Twitter Blog:
“There are also many commercial services that purport to offer insights on bots and their activity online, and frequently their focus is entirely on Twitter due to the free data we provide through our public APIs. Unfortunately, this research is rarely peer-reviewed and often does not hold up to scrutiny, further confusing the public’s understanding of what’s really happening.”

Sletter YouTube automatisk Kina-kritiske kommentarer?

– Bemærk: Artiklen citerer et medie, der er ejet af Falun Gung-bevægelsen, og citerer en anden avis, der også er ejet af Falun Gong, og menneskerettighedsaktivisten, der bliver nævnt i artiklen, er en af de mere prominente medlemmer af Falun Gong. Det er ikke, det samme som, at det ikke passer, men lad os bare sige, at kilden til historien ikke er upartisk.

Version2:
“YouTube sletter automatisk kommentarer, som gør brug af sætninger og ord, der typisk bruges til at kritisere landets kommunistparti. Kommentarerne slettes efter få sekunder, og det tyder derfor på, at de opfanges af YouTubes algoritme.

Det skriver det amerikanske medie NTD.

Sådan bruger annoncører TikTok under krisen

Digiday:
“The challenge format, whereby TikTok users will make videos attempting to do the same thing, lends itself to user-generated content which is highly coveted by advertisers now. Indeed, Procter & Gamble’s Distance Dance sponsored challenge with dancer Charlie D’amelio on TikTok last month has generated over 14 billion views since it launched last month. That’s on the back of ad format that costs $150,000.”

Joe Rogan skifter til Spotify

Recode:
“Spotify hasn’t released terms of the deal, but it would be reasonable to assume that it’s at least in the ballpark of what Spotify paid to acquire Bill Simmons’s The Ringer earlier this year: That deal cost Spotify around $190 million, plus another $50 million or so in employment contracts. The Wall Street Journal pegs the price at $100 million but also suggests it could be more.”

Poynter:
“Now, small newsrooms around the country, often more than 100 years old, often the only news source in those places, are closing under the weight of the coronavirus. Some report they’re merging with nearby publications. But that “merger” means the end of news dedicated to those communities, the evaporation of institutional knowledge and the loss of local jobs.”

Apple arbejder på serie om Gawker Media til TV+

Vanity Fair:
“The show was conceived and pitched by two former Gawker staffers, Max Read and Cord Jefferson, who have been working on scripts for the past couple of months with a writers room that apparently includes some other Gawker alumni. Read was Gawker’s editor in chief at one point, but stepped down in 2015 amid a controversy related to a post about an executive at Condé Nast (which owns Vanity Fair). He then landed at New York magazine, but resigned recently to concentrate on the show. Jefferson is a former Gawker writer and editor who went on to work in TV, where he has racked up credits on shows including Watchmen, Succession, and Master of None.

De nye abonnenter i krisen er ikke nye brugere

– Ja, det er måske en lidt kringlet overskrift, men pointen er, at det især er blandt de brugere, der i forvejen var de mest aktive på de respektive medier, vi skal finde dem, der har købt abonnement under coronavirus-/COVID-19-krisen, det såkaldte “corona bump”.

Journalism.co.uk:
“But when we look closer, said Piechota, it is not the new readers who are driving the subscriptions growth related to coronavirus news. Data by Deep.BI shows that it is the most engaged readers and longtime website users who are fuelling the bump.

According to the same data, new readers require more time to engage with a website before taking out subscriptions. So if your organisations relies on subscriptions for revenue, it pays off to engage your future audience early on. One way to do that is to offer free subscription to students, like The New York Times.”

Medier fremhæver positive historier for at få annoncørerne tilbage

Now they are trying to focus on the positive, highlighting packages of stories of civic, economic and public recovery, and they appear to be having some success.”

“The breakthrough here is Spatial, a collaborative workspace app that just became available for the popular Oculus Quest VR headset. It’s not hyperbole to say that Spatial has unilaterally reignited my enthusiasm for the Quest, which has recently gathered dust on my desk, as the potent pairing enables me to quickly participate in 3D group meetings filled with multiple realistic participants. Instead of using cartoony avatars or floating video tiles, Spatial users appear as “holograms” with real faces, motion-sensed head and hand movements, and even lip motions keyed to their live voices.”
